We're mostly settled in...but there is still a bit of work to do before I'll really feel like things are completely in order. I'm always amazed at how much of an ordeal it is to move! We don't even have that much stuff! Anyway, blogging has kind of taken a backseat for a while, and it will probably continue to for a bit longer. But family--never fear! The camera is still working a full-time job capturing our little guy in action. I'll get caught up eventually. In the meantime, here are a few quick snapshots for you to enjoy.
Talmage loves the tall windows we are blessed to have all over the place! I love them too! I never knew how much I am affected by having a lot of natural light in my living area until I was in an apartment all day, every day.

We love living here. Everything about this place is miraculous--from the circumstances that led us to it, to the $300/month discount the landlord gave us in rent since we signed a 3 year lease, to the amazing realtor who made sure we got it amidst the countless people scrambling for it, to the little details we love. Moving here truly was like coming home. It has been SUCH a blessing in our lives!


  1. YAY! I'm so glad you got there!

    I love all the window pics - super cute. We had to go around and tie up all the cords now that Peter can climb up to them - don't want any cord wrapping accidents. It sure is fun to go outside and see him waving at us!

    Hope you are still loving your new place. And that the banana bread turned out as delicious as anything. :)

  2. Haha, I knew those pictures would look bad with him hanging onto the cord! I haven't tied our cords up, but whenever they are low enough for him to reach, I double them back up and hook them at the top of the blinds...just in case that was a subtle hint for me to baby-proof things. :)

    The banana bread was great! Sam loved it. He said it had such a wholesome taste. It's pretty resilient, too, because I went next door for what I thought would be 5 minutes or less when there was 11 minutes left on the timer, and it turned out to be about 25 minutes that I was there! I came home panicked, expecting the bread to be burnt black, but it was still moist and yummy! Thanks for sharing.

  3. I don't think you're a bad mom, just in case you're wondering. Sometimes there are things we we just don't notice until someone else points them out. Hopefully I'm not annoyingly big-sister-ish about it.

    So, if you've ever seen the five-hour version of Pride and Prejudice, you might remember someone's conversation being called "wholesome." If not, you won't get the joke, but I had to smile when I read that word.

  4. And sometimes there are typos that we don't figure out until younger sisters point them out to us. :) And I have to say that I am part of the reason Kaitlyn hasn't blogged recently! But I sure had fun...

  5. You guys make me laugh. Thanks for commenting all the time! And Jocilyn, sorry to come off so defensive. I do appreciate knowing what you guys do with Peter--it has helped me on more than one occasion! :)

  6. P.S. Breanne, I had tons of fun too! How did auditions go?
